Parking lot runoff concerns county

Published Aug. 6, 2007
During a July 31 meeting, commissioners said they intend to send a resolution to the Department of Environmental Protection expressing their concern that runoff from the parking lot - and the oil and chemicals it contains - could be a source of pollution for the springs.

The springs pump out an estimated 550 million gallons of water a day to feed the Silver and Ocklawaha rivers. Silver Springs is state-owned land that the theme park leases.
